The girls...

Now this picture does my SWEET new camera justice! I snapped my twin nieces, Meredith on the left and Catherine on the right, pushing Anna around on a toy tractor out at Nana and Papaw's house. Those girls are great entertainment!

Why must this be fun?

Anna was being a pain today, but for a small amount of time while eating, she was happy. Probably only because I was serving avocado for lunch, her favorite. So while she smeared green slime all over everything (which stains if you don't treat it right away!!), I snapped pictures with my SWEET new camera. The pictures don't do my SWEET new camera justice. I have some more where I have all the settings right. If anyone needs some pictures taken, I'll gladly take them for you with my SWEET new camera!

In her element!

We took Anna to an art show a few weeks ago. It was a friend of ours who was graduating from Tech with his degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Jewelry. He had his BFA show, like the one I had to have to graduate (only much bigger and better! ) I had helped out with the show all week and we were really looking forward to the big night. I sort of volunteered to photograph the event and had been up there most of the afternoon helping set up. My husband brought Anna up to the show. Her hair wasn't really fixed...he brought a pink clip so I could do it when they got to the show. He also selected a rather random pair of shoes, her furry boots, for her to wear. I'm sure if I would've put something better for her to wear out where he could find it, she might have looked a little better. :) Anyway, Anna absolutely had a blast at the show! She naturally could care less about the hundreds of strangers walking around or the very expensive art on the pedistals all around her. I'm so glad that she didn't knock anything over. She would just walk up to someone, stop right at their feet, look up at them, then look back down and step on their toes, then walk to the next person.

If you'd like to see any of Andrew's artwork, he has his own website! Not the kind of "jewelry" you're probably thinking of... click the tabs at the top of the site.

Miss Blue Eyes.

This is the picture I'm putting on the Christmas card. I usually make the cards by hand, therefore there aren't very many to be sent out. I'm lazy and don't make a ton of them. So here's your very impersonal e-card! Sorry... but Merry Christmas! You can't really tell, but her eyes are blue! I finally figured that one out.

Snow Day

We got between 4 and 5 inches of snow yesterday. I didn't get Anna out in it to play until this morning. I knew the snow would stick around since they predicted another very cold day today. So we waited until the sun came that made a difference in the temperature. It was still very cold. I think in the mid 20s when these pictures were taken. Anna's first time to play in snow. I believe the last time she saw it was when she was only a weeks old, so needless to day, she could cared less. This time was definitely different. She ran right for the snow as soon as I put her down and of course fell face first into a small drift. She jumped back up, started digging, eating, and throwing the snow. It was great. She, of course, then headed for her slide thing that was covered in snow. She attempted to climb up the side, but the zip-lock bags I had rubber banded around her ankles to keep her feet dry caused the climbing to be rather difficult. The fun didn't last long. She finally figured it out. She also didn't really have a water-proof wardrobe so her sweatpants were instantly wet or had snow caked all over them. We lasted as long as we could out there. About until the battery on the video camera died and I had exhausted my angles for pictures.
